I was trying to do something in Freehand, go to the Help menu to find out if such a thing is possible. It is, but it tells me to open a menu window but does not tell me how. I’ve noticed this lack of more contextual help in Photoshop also. As I don’t use these packages all the time it’s a problem for me.
It wouldn’t be that hard to have a section that could be linked to from this type of help where you can click here and here (with a couple of helpful diagrams) so I don’t have to search elsewhere to find these sorts of instructions.
For example, this is the current version.
And this is what it could look like with a link to tell a user what and where the effect type pop-up menu is.
How about it Macromedia/Adobe?
Website support has this type of information but you have to be online to get it.
